AIRPORT

It’s a busy place sometimes.  People moving.  Heading someplace. Not really noticing others so much.  Except for security who has it’s eye on you (and will usher you out if you hang around taking pictures…)  

FOG

Photographers love fog.  Only some fog though.  Not fogged lenses, fogged film or foggy brains (although, maybe sometimes a foggy brain…). Fog is not rare, but unusual.  Things look different.  The light is diffuse, some colors are filtered out, stuff in the distance disappears and hides man made object. If you like to shoot in …

FLEMINGTON STREETSCAPE

We are coming in for a landing on our latest project, Flemington Streetscape. Like many towns, Flemington NJ in Hunterdon County has seen a migration of businesses out of the downtown to the shopping centers on the edges of the borough.  It has still held onto it’s character, though.  There are proposals for major redevelopments …

INSPIRED PHOTOS

Did you ever try doing the “photo-a-day” thing? On one hand it’s easy.  Just point your camera or cell phone at something and shoot.  But is it worthy or is it just an ‘exposure.’ The other kind of photo, the inspired kind, is more than pushing a button.  There’s something more going on, something inside. …

FIRING IN THE SNOW

Whenever it snows I want to run out and take pictures.   Pictures, pictures, pictures.  So I end up with a lot of snow pictures. It’s a little unusual and unusual things catch my eye and prompt me to get out the picture taking machine.  Not a bad thing, but the real challenge is photographing the …

At a minimum the camera will record the camera settings such as exposure, date, time, white balance etc. Cameras equipped with GPS receivers can also record the latitude and longitude of the camera when the photo was taken. Additional metadata including the name of the photographer, copyright …

CLARK

People travel.  They have journeys. Clark has been traveling for 13 years, walking/biking around the country.  It’s not easy, but it’s what he does.

SHOOTING IN THE RAIN

It’s wet.  It’s cold.  Maybe your camera’s not weather proof and the lighting sucks. Rain photos are harder to do and harder to make stunning. Why bother shooting in the rain?  Mostly we don’t.  No harm done, really. But (yes, of course there is a but), rain photos are less common so when you get a …

WEAVING

Weaving is a process.  It takes a long time to create a tapestry, one thread at a time. It is easy to think of art as a burst of creation by a talented person but really it’s a skill meticulously learned and honed over a lifetime.  Great artists aren’t born so much as self-made.  Rita …
